I frequent this shop more than I’d like to admit because each time I go, I inevitably forget to stock up on one of the many refillables I buy here! I’ve gotten to know the founder of this shop thanks to my frequent visits… After discovering the shocking amount of harmful ingredients in most of our food and beauty products, she began researching natural ingredients and their benefits and using them to make her own personal care products. Realizing she could make these products affordably along with the fact that friends and family were loving them, she decided to open Green & Frugal. 

With an awesome selection of self-care products, also great for gifting, and sustainable swap items available, all at great prices, the store has seen much success and now has three GTA locations, one of which is located in the heart of the city, in Kensington Market. Most of my shower and hair care routine comes courtesy of their sustainable and/or refillable products, from soap bars to an apple cider vinegar rinse, frizz spray, and dry shampoo for my hair. Their body scrubs and butters and bath salts are also some of my favourites, especially for gifting!

Kensington is also one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the city thanks to its eclectic collection of vintage shops, independent markets, and unique cafes and restaurants. Blue Banana, the 6×8 Market, and Bunner’s Bakeshop (completely vegan) are a few of my faves!
